Jessica Weisberg: A Seminary For Nonbelievers: Is A. C. Grayling Creating His Own Religion?
A.C. Grayling has an impressive resume. He has been a philosophy professor, a representative to the UN Human Rights Council, the Honorary Secretary of the Aristotelian Society, and the author of twenty-some books.
He has even written his own bible: The Good Book, a 600-page compendium of his favorite philosophical texts, released last March. As if that weren’t enough, though, he’ll soon assume yet another title: the founding headmaster at the New College of Humanities, in London. With some of the world’s most prominent atheists signed up to teach—including Richard Dawkins, Peter Singer, Niall Ferguson, Laurence Krauss, and Steven Pinker—the school looks like a seminary for nonbelievers.
